One of the most enjoyable parties I ever attended was my friend Samantha’s casino party. We had a blast playing games, gambling with fake chips, and spending the night laughing and eating delicious food. Casino parties can be so much fun if done right, especially those that go all out to create the right atmosphere. With that in mind, here are a few guidelines to plan a chic casino party that your friends will never forget!
1) Casino-inspired invitations
First things first – send out gorgeous casino-inspired invitations for your guests. Make sure that they aren’t boring and blab – a white page with text just won’t do. Your guests should be excited about the party and it’s the invitation that will get them there. There are gorgeous casino and poker party invitations available on sites like Etsy. You can also make them yourself, of course, if you feel up to the challenge.
2) Learn the rules and set up the games
Nothing worse for a hostess than to set-up a wonderful casino party, only to have no idea how to play any of the games. It’s your responsibility to ensure that everyone is up to speed with how casino games are played and how the evening’s gambling will work. Whether you are setting up tables for poker, putting up fun online slots games on screens, or even if you have an actual roulette table to play with, if you and your friends don’t know how to play, it won’t be fun. Inform yourself! You can go to wwwOnlineCasino.ca to read about the rules and develop your gambling style in preparation for the party.
3) Décor & ambience
One of the most important aspects to your party will be the decoration and ambience you create. When your guests come over, they should be leaving the mundane routine behind them and entering a room that has been transformed into a fun casino party. To do that, you can use the classic colors of red, black and white (for the chips) to decorate around the room. If you feel like doing some DIY, you can create posters shaped and decorated like cards, poker chips, dice, and even Vegas show signs.
4) Casino themed food
If you love to bake and cook, this is a particularly fun way to add some interesting elements to your party. You can bake cookies in the shape of cards or casino chips, make a beautiful cake decorated with casino elements, serve shrimp aligned on a cocktail cup, or any interesting ideas you can think of. You can even make ice cubes in the shape of spades, hearts, diamonds, and clubs! Pinterest is the place to go to find the best casino-themed food items… but beware – you will be submerged into a world of amazing recipes and ideas and you may want to make them all.
5) Dress up
Your invitation should tell everyone to dress appropriately for your casino night. What constitutes appropriate attire wear for a casino party? Well, really it’s up to you and what you envision for your casino night. You could have all the gentlemen and ladies dress very formal, you could ask them to dress as if they were heading out for a fun night in Vegas, or maybe you would like a 1920s inspired casino party. Either way, dressing up will bring the party to a whole new level. Watch how all your guests will feel submerged into the fantasy of being into a casino – it’s a lot of fun!
